Rush Creek is an amazing place to stay! Very family friendly while also catering to the celebration crowd. Grounds and buildings are great. Some amazing woodwork to admire. Food & Beverage excellent. Outside play area a plus for all "kids" of any age, especially the Zip lines.

We needed to organize 60 people employee retreat with their families and after a long search chose Rushcreek. It exceeded our expectations. They were very well organized with various restaurants, bar, event hall and spa. We had a schedule full of fun events (dance party, meeting, games) we did at Rushcreek even if it rained and snowed. The lodge was fun for adults as much as kids who enjoyed playing in a snow as well as the spa. Their event hall served well for our company fun events. We will be coming back next year!

Everything about this lodge was perfect! Cozy, clean, amazing food in tavern and restaurant, amazing spa services and spa amenities, huge heated salt water pool and two hot tubs. Gift shop with with a barista, huge game room for families, and wonderful customer service! Every employee I encountered was friendly and helpful....a rarity these days. The spa was the highlight! Never been to a nicer spa! 5 stars for this place!!

Excellent family trip!

This is my second time staying at the lodge and it once again exceeded my expectations. Traveling with 12 people, kids, and people with different interests and tastes can be difficult but Rush Creek Lodge made it easy. Something for everyone to do. Adults and kids enjoyed equally. We played in the snow, hot tubbed in the snow, played games, enjoyed the lodge, ate amazing food, and enjoyed the rooms. We stayed in the villas which were perfect for families. The staff was friendly and helpful. We will definitely be going back.

Rush Creek Lodge - Room: Enjoyed the decor. Highlight: Whole wood stump stool or end table. Lowlight: The comforter was thin, and failed to keep me warm. It led me to run the heater more and I didn't care for the added noise. Enjoyed the house-branded soaps. Overall 8/10 Rush Creek Spa - I was totally delighted by this spa, light experience.Took my son in with us for 3 hours. We all really enjoyed the sitting waterfalls. The scent in the steam room and the ice-cold wet towels showed care and attention to detail. I would have enjoyed the sensory room more had the heated seating been active. I would have liked it more if hot beverages were ready to serve rather than self-serve. 9/10 - Would recommend Rush Creek Tavern Activities: Outdoor: Zipline, slide, pool and play areas were excellent Indoor: We all really enjoyed the indoor play space. My son enjoyed the climbing wall and tunnel. I found myself getting lost in a few pinball games. I appreciated that the pinball sounds were muted and didn't disturb the atmosphere. Activity Score 10/10 Food: Breakfast: Just awful. Extremely slow timelines for food on all three breakfasts. We arrived just as the restaurant opened on two occasions and order took 20-30 minutes to arrive. It’s not like the oatmeal is cooked to order. Scoop it, dress it and bring it out. The avocado toast made me feel sad for both the avocado and the toast. The hollandaise sauce was dull and sullen when it should have been bright and smiling. Must have been a bad lemon juice day. Dinner: Hit and miss here as well. The short rib brought tears of joy to my eyes but the two other meals I had were poorly seasoned (chili) or unevenly cooked (pork). It's something special to both under cook and over cook the same slice of meat. Kids meal: My son had the bare-bones cheese burger. I always taste-test my son’s food. A cheeseburger is a simple meal and going with a fresh ground patty with a little flair would have been a big improvement over a flavorless, frozen hockey puck. Food Score: 3/10 Overall: I love a great meal. I have driven 30 mins to great a great burger, taco, or slice of pizza. I can't give Rush Creek Lodge a full five stars.
